It's no surprise to those who read my blog lately that I have a four month old daughter who is the sweetest baby ever, but I feel that my blog is taking a backseat to life again (as it should I suppose). When Spencer naps, I generally try to get some chores done or end up watching Netflix. I haven't put as much time in to reading either, but I'm hoping that changes soon.
I'm trying very hard to work on a schedule for Spencer so that her feedings, naps and bedtime are more consistent in hopes that I can figure out how to fit in reading and blogging a little more. Or at least setting aside a few hours a week for blogging, so I can work on a few posts a couple of times a week so that I feel more accomplished.
This week Spencer is trying baby cereal and bigger bottles. It's been a challenge going from smaller bottles more often to larger ones spaced out, but we'll get there and I hope this means she may nap longer or go to bed earlier at night.
The one thing that has been happening is reading with Spencer and I've already posted the first review for a book we read together - No, No, Gnome! So look forward to more reviews featuring my sweet baby girl.
I have a few blog tours to complete, which I think are helping me to make sure I get some reading into my routine. I miss reading! And I've been trying to use my tablet to read using my Kindle app. I've been trying to use social media more while baby is feeding or sleeping my arms. Thank goodness for cells phones with WiFi.
Finding balance has always been hard, but now it's that much more difficult. I'm looking at ways to organize my blogging ideas and posts while fitting it into my day of being a full time Mom (at least for a year while I'm on maternity leave) and keeping my home organized as well. I'm sure when I go back to work it will be even more interesting.
For other momma book bloggers out there - how did you find the balance? Looking for suggestions on getting organized. When do you fit blogging and social media into your day?
